The 2019 BMW 3 Series will make its debut at the Paris Auto Show next week.

The sixth-generation BMW 3 Series has been with us for awhile now, originally arriving on the scene back in 2011. Now, the G20 seventh-generation 3 Series is ready to take its place. We saw the 2019 BMW 3 Series testing in the Colorado mountains back in July, and we knew a reveal was coming soon. Although, this latest photo gives us a bit more insight as to what the new model will look like.

Note I said “a bit”, as we are still looking at a car under a cover here. However, we can get a better look at the signature kidney grille and new laser headlamps. It looks like the 2019 BMW 3 Series has a more pronounced grille than the current generation car. The headlight assemblies are also a bit more rounded, while the headlights – complete with LED running lights – have taken on a more aggressive, prominent shape as well.

We expect the 2019 BMW 3 Series to come with two engines. You’ll have the option of either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six. BMW should also introduce a new digital instrument cluster, first shown in the new 8 Series coupe. The 2019 BMW 3 Series will also have a stiffer and lighter chassis than the outgoing model.

Joining the 3 Series at the Paris Auto Show will be the recently debuted Z4 and 8 Series. The revamped X5 and BMW’s next-generation electric concept – the Vision iNext – should also make their debuts. Stay tuned to TFLcar.com for more details!
